wooho, great!
yah, there's a *lot* of people who take issue w/ how much CPU the flash plugin can use/take, so we're *really* glad to present the html5 new option as an alternative for relatively new browsers to take full advantage of.

i get pretty annoyed myself to find paused flash-based videos are taking 1.5GB of my RAM *resident* and CPU when they aren't doing anything, for example.... 8-P

but some folx strongly prefer flash, too, so YMMV! we'd like to ideally give our users the option to do whatever they like best...
